* Saint Dane in the [[ThePendragonAdventure Pendragon series]]: ''The Soldiers Of Halla'', in particular. While it looks like the Ravinians are on Saint Dane's side, it's revealed late in the book that they hate what's going on too, and they deactivate the dados and help save everyone. So no one likes Saint Dane, not even the people he gave immense wealth and privilege to.

* In ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'', Ming the Merciless seems to be hated by everybody -- but their hatred of him is exceeded by their fear of him, as his name would suggest. That, and most of Mongo's races are too busy [[WeAreStrugglingTogether hating each other]] to focus on Ming himself. (By contrast, in the [[Series/FlashGordon Sci Fi Channel series]], he's charismatic and actually has a pretty good PR thing going.)

** During development, the game developers had Combine propaganda posters hanging on walls throughout the game, but thought that the alien overlords wouldn't care about public opinion, so they left it out. In the final game, Breen seems to be the only one who thinks of the invasion and enslavement as a positive.

* In Literature/TheBible, King Jehoram of Judah was recorded as having died "without being desired" in 2nd Chronicles 21:20, meaning that he was so unlikable as king that nobody was sad to see him go.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': You start the game with pretty much everyone wanting nothing to do with you due to your "record": fellow students, teachers, plice officers, your legal guardian in Tokyo, even your ''parents''. In fact, you only make your first friend after you're both nearly killed in the [[MentalWorld collective unconscious]].

* Dakki of ''Manga/SoulHunter'' is a good example. She has got the emperor Chuuou under her leash (per seduction spell) and thinks of a new atrocity each month. She lives in luxury, while the peasants starve and are picked off for her entertainment. Entertainment, in this case, always involves dying, in a snake pit, in a forest by wild tigers, and somesuch, while the emperor and she drink on a boat on a frikking lake of sake...And the list goes on. Everyone that isn't under her temptation spell (aka, everyone powerful enough or far enough away) hates her with passion. The best/worst part? [[KarmaHoudini She gets away with it]]

* ''Comicbook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'' comments on this in the last chapter, showing a newspaper headline when Scrooge decides to retire: ''Cantankerous tycoon will be missed by few.'' Followed by a smaller headline later on the same page: ...''if any...''

*** Joffrey Baratheon is completely loathed by everyone even before he was king for his pointless cruelty to everyone, just to show he's the king. [[spoiler:Of course, when he gets poisoned later on, nobody knows who killed him and nobody, not even his own family, rally care about finding out.]]

* In the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series, Dr. Weil takes over Neo Arcadia in ''Zero 3''. Sure, Copy X was a total jerk, but at least he was good at taking care of the people he governed. Then in 4, we see humans leaving Neo Arcadia in droves for the greener pastures of Area Zero. Gee, I wonder why? Weil tries to rectify the problem...by ''forcefully taking them back''. This doesn't work, so he tries to destroy Area Zero's environment instead. Not only is he making things worse for himself, but [[spoiler:Neo Arcadia is blown up by Weil's own KillSat, and his approval rating also seemed to be an indication of his chances of survival...]] In this particular case, however, [[DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans that's exactly his intention]].

* The Dark Overlords from the web fiction serial ''Literature/DimensionHeroes'' are almost universally hated by the populace of their dimension...that is, unless they manage to brainwash them to see things from their point of view.

* The Maoh King in ''Anime/GenmaWars'' is a cruel and decadent demon king whose pastime is taking human girls as concubines to provide him with half-human heirs and engineer war and destruction for his entertainment. None of his subjects - either human or demonic - have anything good to say about him and even some demon noblemen were plotting to overthrow him. In the end, [[spoiler: his many hybrid children team up to defeat him, but the Maoh King's own demise came from his own hated wife Parome]].



* Dracula in ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' has every major faction in [[{{Hell}} Résurrection]] gunning for him: The [[OurGhostsAreDifferent lamias]] despise him for good reason since they are oppressed by his authoritarian rule; the [[GhostPirate Ghouls]] and the [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent Dystopians]] are his greatest political rivals who would like to replace him as dominant power; a secret vampire group headed by one of his [[TheStarscream top lieutenants]] [[TheChessmaster Black Sabbat]] is secretly plotting to overthrow Dracula and rule the world through a figurehead leader. It doesn't help that Dracula doesn't try to endear himself to possible allies since [[MadScientist the Archaeologists]] decided to side with Sabbat after Dracula had their high priest was mutilated out of spite in his EstablishingCharacterMoment. Ironically, the main protagonist himself would like to keep his distance from him, but he is dragged into the feud after his girlfriend is forced to become Dracula's bride.
